Latest Techniques in First Aid, CPR, and AED
Basic First Aid
Basic First Aid skill training is the most popular course offered in Thunder Bay First Aid, along with CPR and AED. Basic first aid classes cover a variety of situations, from concussions to bleeding emergencies. Trainees are introduced to different kinds of injuries and the associated first aid management for them. Mild bleeding is one of the topics covered in the basic first aid classes; a short lesson is given below.
Mild bleeding is referred to bleeding wounds that do not require emergency medical attention. Simple cuts from household and school accidents can be classified as mild bleeding.
- Clean the wound with running water, then apply an antiseptic solution and sterile dressing. Avoid using alcohol as it promotes scarring and is no longer the most effective method of cleaning wounds.
- If bleeding is slightly heavy, put firm pressure over the wound with gauze.
- Should the cut be deep and require stitches, or if the bleeding doesn’t stop, go to the nearest emergency room or clinic.
CPR and AED
All CPR training courses include AED training. AEDs are machines that are able to detect heart rhythms and apply needed shock to restart the heart. Training in the use of AEDs is included in all the training levels. Stand-alone classes on CPR and AED or basic first aid training only are offered to students who do not want to undergo the entire training course.
